I have a couple of Corbins on my CBX’s, the one on my 80 I bought and quite frankly is the worst seat I’ve ever sat on, even worse than the factory fjr seat,,,,, but it is pretty !
The one on my 81 is what I all a taxi cab weave, hard as a brick but holds my personal longest day record at 730mi.
On the fjr, the oe seat was good for a max of 40-45min Max but I was starting to hurt at about 30min. So within a very short time of buying my fjr I ordered the Yamaha “touring, comfort, gel” seat which was a big improvement but still good for about 350-400mi before needing to call it a day. And after a 380mi each way trip I came home and called Seth Laam with the oe seat in the mail by weeks end,,,, best money I ever spent !
I looked at Russell as well but just couldn’t get over the look, while I have no doubt that they are comfy they are just ugly to me. With my Laam I have ridden up to 670mi with no butt pain, could’ve easily gone farther but it was raining and just time to get a room.
Anyway like many here I have spent a lot of money on “fix’s” but would’ve been better off and cheaper to simply just spend the money &buy a Laam or Russell, I would be money ahead. I have almost the same money in my “comfort” seat as I do in my Laam for a 400mi seat. The Yamaha “touring” seat is a good looking seat but it ain’t no Laam !
Red 2014A, the fastest color !
Ride more,, worry less !
